It is an interesting and not a simple question to ask.In the UK, seems that Vanquish prices have held over the last year and actually gone up a small bit. Do you think the trend will continue or will early cars start depreciating again towards the end of the year?
Many thanks. Excellent analysis and I have to agree. Think long term a manual "S" will be a great buy.It is an interesting and not a simple question to ask.
So far I would say that the prices would continue to go up.
This is because the Vanquiush started to depreciate progressively as new, more refined Astons have come out in the last years or so.
Initially customers were looking for better build quality, a more refined powertrain (in terms of the transmission), and cheaper cars that Aston offerred after the Vanquish, so the value of the Vanquish dropped heavily once the DB9 and later the V8 vantage got popular.
However now, the Vanquish can be regarded as more of a classic model than an old model with newer/better/cheaper models in the lineup. It has the looks that would distinguish it form the current Aston lineup and the "former flagship car" image that would result in the customers forgiving its faults. Plus the fact that it hs not been in the media much lately (since it is not in production) make it seem much more exotic than the "more commonplace" DB9 (which is itself aging).
I could be wrong, but I think that the manual (final edition) versions of the Vanquish S might even fetch more than a DBS sometime soon, with the S in gereral appreciating well.
And, again I do think that the Vanquish prices would increase slowly untill 2013, then drop slightly (new lineup introduction), and then continue to increase with little disruption afterwards.
Thank you, Boxer.Many thanks. Excellent analysis and I have to agree. Think long term a manual "S" will be a great buy.
Any idea how many of each Vanquish version were produced?Thank you, Boxer.
I am no economist, but I was alerted by the prices on the rise too (I like looking at classifieds in my free time). I think the Vanquish would be able to hold its value much better than the DB7, DB9 or the V8 vantage once time passes.
Considering that the prices for the older DB7 i6 bottomed out just now and the DB7 Vantage is continuing to depreciate, one can see how valuable the Vanquish is getting, probably partially due to all the attention it got at the release.
I apologize for the late reply... There were 2593 total VanquishesAny idea how many of each Vanquish version were produced?
